Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Clear medium amber pour, moderate rocky head of beige bubbles. Bready, roasty malt and earthy aroma, a bit more herbal than I normally get from this style. Has a surprising sweet chocolate hit at the start, kind of a cocoa mix flavor, caramel, bread, herbal earthy finish. Has an odd grassy note somewhere in the middle. A little off, but not bad still.

TChrome (1439) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2011
This beer pours a medium chestnut color with a retained khaki colored head. The aroma is quite malty with some roasted notes, also an aroma that I assocaited with Octoberfest beers that are lagered, but do not have a descriptor for. Flavor is sweet with some light earthy flavors. Pretty straightworward beer, but good nonetheless.
